Rare Wine, Rare Books

Sheet Music from Special CollectionsMark your calendars now for the 2018 Rare Wine, Rare Books wine-tasting dinner.

Join us on Friday, July 27, 2018, in Missouri State University’s Duane G. Meyer Library as we enjoy good food, good wine, and learn a bit about some of the university’s most interesting collections. This year’s theme focuses on Drama and Theatre. Over a dinner featuring six flights of wine, guests will learn about Missouri State University’s rare books, as well as efforts to preserve our community’s theatre history.


In the next few months, we will add information about the wines, our speaker, and the program for the evening. Please check back to learn more about this one-of-a-kind event!
